Add to Cart 7.95

A comprehensive, no-nonsense guide to your new camera – learn the basics of photography and find your way confidently round your Canon EOS 800D (also known as Rebel T7i) with this 187-page book.

This reference volume will be ideal if you're new to photography or are self-taught, or you originally learnt with a film camera and sometimes struggle to get the images you want with digital cameras.

Nina starts off by explaining the basic terms used within photography and then looks at how to make the most of the Basic Zone – this enables you to get going with the automated modes on your 800D whilst learning about the more sophisticated and customisable features on your camera.

Then, as the guide moves on, you'll learn how take images successfully with your EOS 800D using the Creative Zone modes. You'll also find out about some of the overrides that you're most likely to use within these modes – what they do and how they are applied.

Extending your EOS system
Part of the strength of the EOS system and why DSLRs remain so popular is the vast lens range that's available to enhance and extend your photography. Nina takes a look at why the lenses you use play such an important part in capturing your images and altering your outlook, whilst also explaining some of the terms commonly associated with lenses.
